Name: Dan
What Dan does: Editor
At PH since: "November 2011; nearly part of the furniture now!"
Dan's dream car: "Porsche GB's Riviera Blue 997 GT3 press car. Off the top of my head..."
Dan's actual car: "A cheapy Eunos Roadster with a noisy exhaust. Several bicycles, each of which cost considerably more than the Mazda. More recently circumstances dictated I buy a sensible family estate. So I got an imported Subaru Forester STI. So a family estate, if not especially sensible."
What Dan loves about working on PistonHeads: "It's geeky, the banter flows in abundance and anyone showing signs of taking themselves too seriously has it ripped out of them mercilessly in seconds. Same as the office!"

Name: Matt Bird
What Matt does: "Drives cars, writes about cars. Dreams about buying a car again someday!"
At PH since: "Summer 2013, at least officially. Longest I've been in a job since my paper round."
Matt's dream car: "Ferrari 458 Speciale."
Matt's actual car: "I crashed a 306 Rallye. I cried. I have no car. To be rectified as soon as possible"
What Matt loves about working on PistonHeads: "The sense of immediacy and connection with the readership. I write, you respond! It's very cool and it means I'm always learning stuff. I love pretending to be a racing driver sometimes too."

Name: James Drake
What James does: Community and Marketing Manager
At PH since: "July 2014 - time flies, etc!"
James's dream car: "Despite what you may have heard it is not an MX-5. Probably an F40."
James's actual car: "A fast family sleeper in the shape of a SEAT Altea FR, a number of bicycles, whatever long-termer I can get my hands on."
What James loves about working on PistonHeads: "The concept of a huge community of people from all walks of life being united in a love of all things automotive is pretty amazing. Its also lovely to be paid for something I'm enthusiastic about. And the banter is hilarious." [He says that now... - Ed.]

Name: Nikolai Attard
What Nikolai does: Content and Production Manager
At PH since: 2015
Nikolai's dream car: " I can't have only one... but if I must probably a F12. No need to be a tdf, that's being greedy."
Nikolai's actual car: "An Oyster card - gets pretty good MPG."
What Nikolai loves about working on PistonHeads: "It doesn't feel like work and as a pretty close knit team, we have plenty of discussions that have us wondering why girls actually talk to us. Oh, and there is the odd modelling job."

Name: Dafydd Wood
What Dafydd does: Social Media Manager
At PH since: "Summer 2014."

Dafydd's actual car: "Nothing at the moment, can I have a lift?"
What Dafydd loves about working on PistonHeads: "Working in an industry for which I have a real passion and with people that I'm lucky enough to genuinely enjoy the company of.
